We kept our oeg bantams Thelma and Louise inside last night b/c Louise was acting odd yesterday. This morning we let them out into the yard b/c Thelma was yelling at us as usual even after treats. Thelma continued to yell at me every time I went outside to see all of the girls and would sneak into the house every chance she got. While inside and still yelling at us she started rooting in and under various toys and bags. Then it FINALY hit me....... she needs to lay an egg. DW and I had thought the 2 bantams were done for the season. I quickly grabbed a box and threw in some paper shreds, showed it to Thelma and this is what happened....... Hope she likes Sam Adams IN only about 5 minutes And then tried to steal some towels for her new diggs!!!!! And it seems that I do not need to understand hens or women I just need to say Yes Ma'am!!!!
